Orlando Shooting Used to Push Gun Control

Posted by Troy on 12th June 2016 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

I got to wake up to the news that 20 people were killed last night at a night club.  That turned into 50 killed and 53 wounded.  And of course, I instantly thought “Obviously a Southern white male demanding adherence to the Constitution,” much like any sane person would.  But it actually turned out to be a Muslim terrorist.  Ya know…starting to get annoyed by the word “extremist.”  Just throwing that out there.  Just smacks of PC-ness that is unwarranted at this point in the game.  And, of course, I made a prediction that Obama’s response would be “We have to get rid of guns, people.”  And that’s pretty much what he did.

So, of course, we have to put up with them importing more Muslims into our country (seriously look up the immigration rates since 9/11…illogically, we’ve increased the visas to these countries).  So after these shootings, instead of examining how we look at mosques that we know are espousing extreme view points, we are talking about banning guns.  Shall we forget that the mosques raided after the Paris attacks had a stash of AK-47s and ammo?  Or, as I like to say… “Guns should be illegal so criminals can’t get them…just like drugs.”  You don’t think these animals wouldn’t get guns or explosives or poisons or whatever they want to use to kill us?

Obama asks if we want to be this type of country.  So, that led me to ask…what would it take before I decided that I would be willing to give up my right to keep and bear arms?  I guess the first thing I would have to see is that all of our government officials and buildings give up their own guns and armed security guards and fancy alarm systems and live like the average American.  If they feel safe enough to live like that for ten years…we can talk, but really I wouldn’t go for it even then.

The right to keep and bear arms is the Second Amendment for a reason.  They said “Shall not be infringed” for a reason.  I’m not willing to give up my Constitutional rights just because of these terrorists.

Long Live the Constitution!

“We’re not going to come take your guns away.” Yeah, suuuuure

Posted by Troy on 18th February 2013 in Current Events, Political

New York tried to pass a measure which would allow them to confiscate “assault weapons” from law abiding citizens.

California tried to pass a law that would allow them to confiscate “assault weapons” from law abiding citizens.

Missouri tried to pass a law that would allow them to confiscate “assault weapons” from law abiding citizens.

Now Washington (state) has tried to pass a law that would give them the right to come into the house of someone who legally owns an “assault weapon” and see if it is being stored properly.  I have a feeling, if it isn’t, that confiscation would be an option.

All of these measures have been put forth by Democrats.

In each time, Democrats claim to be shocked and ignorant that these provisions are in these bills.

Obama promised that he wasn’t going to come take your guns away.

Yeah, suuuuuuure.

Long Live the Constitution!

Tom Brokaw – Not the Greatest Generation

Posted by Troy on 18th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

Tom Brokaw scoffs at people who say, “I need my assault weapon to defend myself when the government comes to confiscate my assault weapon.”  And proof that it must not have been the “Greatest Generation” or else Tom Brokaw is not one of the greatest.  Hey, dummy, it’s not to defend because they’ve come to confiscate their weapons.  It is to defend against WHY they want to confiscate the weapons.  That is to say, it is because a government that is intent on disarming its populace is intent on oppressing that populace.  It’s not to defend against being disarmed, it is to protect against what the government intends to do after they are disarmed.  It’s much easier to put up a fight while you’re still armed.  As such, when they come for your arms, that’s when you should fight.

Long Live the Constitution!

Warning Signs of Fascist Totalitarianism

Posted by Troy on 16th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

Here’s a couple of warning signs of fascist totalitarianism.  Totalitarianists love to use little children to push their agenda.  This is because seeing children ramps up the emotional side of us and defeats our rational thought.  We will agree to destroy our freedoms to “protect the children” which represents the future.  However, these are false promises.  All that happens is we give up our own freedoms and rob our children the right to enjoy those freedoms.

That brings us to the second issue.  New York is forcing law abiding citizens to register their “assault weapons.”  If they do not renew this registration every five years, it becomes a felony.  Yeah, no one has forgotten to renew their driver’s license, and that’s something that they use daily.  I wonder if criminals are going to bother registering their weapons.  Nope?  Then, again, this is just a law that penalizes the law abiding citizens, and to what end?  In history, registration of guns always leads to confiscation which leads to mass graves (Germany, Russia, China).

No lives are going to be saved by any of these measures that the President took.  If you banned all assault weapons, criminals will just use whatever weapon they can find.  A shotgun will kill ya just as good as an AR-15 any day and twice on Sundays.  Making doctors tattle on their patients will have the possible side-effect of preventing these people from seeking help in the first place.  Doctors have an obligation to notify police if they feel their patients pose a real threat to someone.  Right now, I’m recommending that people lie to their doctors and tell them that they do not own a gun if they are asked.

I’m sick of how this President operates.  Mark my words, when they start marching out kids that have been coached by party liners to advance the agenda, there’s trouble brewing.  Don’t be fooled.  Let’s let our kids be kids, and we’ll be grown-ups and actually deal with the problem.  If you ask a kid, they might tell you we should end homelessness by giving everyone a house.  Kids aren’t equipped to solve grown-up problems.  However, I can understand why Obama would want to surround himself with children.  It must feel like a Democratic National Convention.

Long Live the Constitution!

Ak-47s belong the the hands of soldiers, not criminals

Posted by Troy on 26th July 2012 in Current Events, Political

Obama begins his attack on the the Second Amendment.  I imagine the Left is fit to be tied.  They thought the public would demand more gun control after the Fast and the Furious.  It didn’t materialize.  Then they thought, surely after Gabby Giffords!  Nope, sorry.  Finally this!  This has to be the moment of truth!!!!  Not even now.  After each of these events, gun sales actually increased.  Imagine that!  It appears that Americans love their right to keep and bear arms.

According to Obama, AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not criminals.  First, he needs to learn about the military.  He’s the Commander in Chief.  I’m sure he can arrange a field trip to a military base.  We use M-16s.  Communists use the AK-47…I can understand why he’s confused, actually.  His premise is that only militaries and criminals use these weapons.  There’s a third group that he always forgets to account for:  law abiding gun owners.  The vast majority of AK-47s are owned by law abiding citizens.  Why should their rights be infringed upon?  His argument is based solely upon the concept that criminals are only willing to use AK-47s to commit their crimes.  Obama is assuming that they would be unwilling to switch over to a different type of rifle or use a shotgun.  This is why gun control opponents say that the end result of gun control must be the illegalization of all guns because, if not, what the hell is the point?

And a note to Fascist Mayor Bloomburg:  If the police of America went on strike until more gun control was enacted, I promise you, you would not see more gun control.  What you would most definitely see is every citizen that could afford guns buying them.  You would also see the pure rape of all those communities that have denied their citizens the right to defend themselves.

Long Live the Constitution!

The silliness of tracking ammunition sales

Posted by Troy on 24th July 2012 in Current Events, Political

Well, it would appear that the general public isn’t biting for more gun control, so the Left is trying to pull back their reach.  Now they just want to get back to assault weapons ban and track ammo sales.  In particular, they claim that most police captains and sheriffs favor an assault weapons ban and tracking ammo sales.  I do not know if that’s true or not, but it doesn’t matter.  As with anything else, the police have a tendency to want to claim more power for themselves (just like everyone else in this world).  This is why they don’t like being videotaped even if they aren’t doing anything wrong.  It’s just their nature.  That’s why we have the expression, “Who’s watching the watchmen?”  I am not trash talking cops.  The vast majority do a great job, and they put their lives on the line to keep the peace.

I doubt there is any statistics to make this scientific, but the vast majority of these crazy nutjobs have read the Communist Manifesto.  Since the bulk of assault weapon owners will not commit a crime and the bulk of Communist Manifesto readers will not commit a crime, could you justify tracking everyone that buys a copy of the Communist Manifesto?  Why not?  Because it’s silly?  Because it’s inappropriate to track 9,999 innocent people’s transactions and purchases to catch one guy?  Yeah, those are good points.  Good points indeed.

There are legitimate reasons for stockpiling ammo right now.  The world’s going to Hell, and a lot of people want to prepare for doomsday.  Do you think they’re going to shoot people up?  No, probably not.  So why hassle them?  Maybe they just bought a new gun and want to do a lot of target practice.  The fact of the matter is, this guy could have purchased 100 bullets and had the same effect.  He didn’t have to buy 6,000 rounds.  He’s a nutjob.  One box of ammo is technically enough to go on a typical workplace rampage.  So what’s the threshold?  It’s retarded.  It’s just more Big Brother crap that’s hiding behind necessity.  As William Pitt said, “Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human liberty; it is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”

The whole assault weapons ban is silliness.  We could call it, “The really cool looking weapons ban” (stealing a little from Glenn Beck there).  Is a AK-47 any more effective at killing someone than a 12 gauge shotgun?  At close range, the shotgun is way more dangerous.  Is it more effective than two 9 mm pistols?  Again, at close range, the pistols are probably more effective.  Unless you are sniping people, a rifle is an inefficient weapon.  If you are sniping, there are better sniping rifles out there than the AK-47 (such as a .306).  We tried an assault weapons ban before, and it had no effect on crime rate.  Why?  Well, maybe because criminals will either buy it on the black market or just use a different gun.  Yeah, that does make sense.

You know how fewer people could have been shot?  If the entire front roll of that theater had rushed the guy, at most 2 people would have been shot, and they may have just been wounded.  This is life, not a video game.  It’s harder to shoot at people when you have ten men rushing you.  When you hit someone, they typically don’t just drop dead like they do in video games.  We need to do more of this.  Again, I point to that 70 year old at Virginia Tech.  If 5 eighteen-year-olds had followed his lead, the shooter would have been taken down there and then.

Long Live the Constitution!
